Steel Hooks for Mechanical Fixing
The safety withholding RAI-FIX hooks are simple and effective devices. They prevent tiles/slabs (set with an adhesive) to fall down in the event of detachment from the wall. When installing tiles/slabs bigger than 30cm in a façade with adhesive, you need to use a mechanical safety system.
Adhesives guarantee perfect anchorage of tiles/slabs, only if perfectly applied but this is not always the case. In addition, it is hard to predict the strains the tiles/slabs will have to bear because of building settlement as well as expansion of temperature range, extreme weather conditions, etc. Therefore, the RAI-FIX safety withholding hooks are a crucial ally to assure maximum safety.
RAI-FIX expands the design possibilities as tiles and slabs of any size can now be used. Aesthetically speaking, RAI-FIX hooks are the perfect solution as they are completely invisible once the façade is done. RAI-FIX hooks are placed between the tiles/slabs and the wall and are 100% hidden. The RAI-FIX safety withholding hooks are made of Grade 316 stainless steel and can be used with tiles/slabs of a minimum thickness of 5mm (0.20 inches). The installation is very simple and is carried out directly on the job site in a few seconds.
